Thrilling audiences with more than 200 performances each season, the MET Orchestra is one of the world’s great performing ensembles, both on stage and in the opera pit. Since its founding in 1883, the MET Orchestra’s performances have encompassed not only the entire opera repertoire, but also symphonic and chamber programs at Carnegie Hall, international tours, and countless musician activities outside of the Metropolitan Opera House. In the first of two concerts prepared for the Library, the MET Orchestra Musicians present a varied program of chamber music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Giacomo Puccini, Samuel Barber and Giuseppe Verdi.
